As we all do our best to keep cool, spare a thought for the animals in our Norfolk zoos.
Amazona Zoo in Cromer is home to South American wildlife including jaguars, monkeys, snakes, flamingos and tapirs.
At the zoo, staff are on hand to keep all their animals cool during what is the hottest day of the year.
All the staff are ensuring that the animals and birds have enough shade and shelter to escape the heat.
One set of animals are being entertained as well as keeping cool.
